Rev. Sarah B. Linn has 20 years of experience in international Christian relief and development in over a dozen countries. From 2003-2009, she lived and worked in the Republic of Yemen, studying Arabic and starting a network of adult vocational training centers.
She received her M.Div degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, having completed the bulk of her studies at Fuller's Colorado Springs campus. She is currently enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry program at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, OK.
Sarah lived in Colorado Springs for about 7 years, starting in the late '90's; it was there that she fell in love with Colorado. After returning from Yemen, she was ordained by the Presbyterian Church (USA) and served a congregation in SE Michigan for almost 4 years before moving to Creede in 2017.
The important thing about Sarah is that she loves Jesus. The most important thing is that Jesus loves her.
Wed. Word - September 22
Unless I feel I am the object of God’s compassion,
I cannot truly understand God’s love….
If I don’t feel it, how can I share it,
bear witness to it, bestow it on others?
-- Pope Francis
This week we’re reading in Mark 9 where the disciples tell Jesus that they stopped someone who wasn’t part of their group from bringing freedom into someone’s life. Once again, Jesus presents a challenge to them (and to us): Don’t get in anyone’s way of living out the life and healing of Jesus. And don’t let anything get in your way of doing so. When we cut off others, we only hurt ourselves. When we embrace the gifts each person brings, we’re all made more whole.
